Great site, the info on many subjects has put my mind at rest - easy to get  paranoid regarding lotus engines and lucas electrics! Regarding brake master cylinders, after being quoted well over £100 for one I examined my old 1977 series 111 landrover and found that the girling cylinder was the same (same numbers but a slightly different shape reservoir) I bought a brand new one for less than half the price.  I have used one 1,000 miles, competed in sprints and hillclimbs with no problem. I'm all for supporting specialist suppliers, but 400% more expensive!
